Excellent atmosphere and communication skills by waiters. Happy hour seemed to last for ever! Very enjoyable meal, the mousaka was so light and well presented, sweets ditto. Good beer, reasonably priced as was the meal too. Great spot for people watching!

If you're looking for an excellent wine selection near the Acropolis in the Plaka, this is the place. Extensive selection by the bottle, and a good rang by the glass. We discovered apaki, a Greek smoked meat, there, both with Greek cheese and on pizza.

We were not impressed with the breakfast. The cost was on par with a 5star hotel in Australia and I could have made a better breakfast. There was a reason this place was empty and some others down the path were full. We should have...More

I first visited Yard All Day based on the high TripAdvisor ratings. It was not a bad decision. In the 2 weeks I spent in Athens I returned 4 more times. The restaurant is not the cheapest, but did have some of the best dishes...More

Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient
temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small
wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer
numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely
pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between
the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth
climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
